Beautiful waterfalls and more...
Aug 28, 2004
This is written so after the event that the order of events is a bit hazy, somehow the kids got us on the correct bus to Rio and found a great hostel just for us.
Enjoyed Rio, but it's not Buenos Aries and there is defiantly an air of danger about the place heightened by the fact if your responsible for other peoples kids. Only one incident with a gun so all went well.
After a really busy spell walking, canoeing, horse riding and all the other things that the Pantanal has to offer we were on our way once more to the infamous Iguazu falls. Here the team found a great Hostel and we had a fantastic time relaxing and exploring the local "Flora nad Fauna" in the area. the waterfalls just take you breathe away, we all visited the point on the borders where you can literally see, Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil all at once. So a quick pop back into Argentina, you have to see the falls from both sides, a ride through the rapids to see them from the bottom. Every country we seemed to visit there would always be some must see waterfall that seldom lived up to it's billing, Iguazu falls on the other hand are truly magnificent.
